After years of avoiding wide fit trousers to negate the unfortunate connotations of my past collecting period menswear, I’ve finally come to terms that it is something I enjoy and is a big part of my style.
Apart from being something intentional and different than dressing to fit in, I also find it comfortable and flattering! Plus, wide fit pants are in- haven’t you been looking at alt tiktok?
I never thought I’d be writing about the late 60s-70s, much less feel like it’s had an impact on my style. Perhaps it’s because I grew a beard and started growing out my hair.
But certainly the wide lapels, long collars, and runaway collars already have a place in my existing style? Read on.
For the first time, we go to a LACMA x Dapper Day event in the evening. It was certainly a great way to end the first month of 2019!
Long story short, these events just get better and better. You need to join us!

It’s been over a year since I’ve purchased an Made-to-Measure suit from Indochino. Now I realized that there were many issues with my first suit made from them, even though I got measured by their own sales associates in their store. The suit looked pretty good after tailoring (and I did get another suit made from them) but I decided not to try them again until I had the money and desire for another suit. Now that I’ve had sometime to learn more about fit, details, and my overall desired aesthetic, I thought I’d save up and give them other try! I also realized that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe: I didn’t own a plain, navy blue double breasted suit. So I deleted my measurements, got measured by my friend Spencer, and bought a suit on Black Friday. It’s basically a whole new review on Indochino.
